I’ve been wanting to put up a history timeline since the beginning of the year. I wanted a wall timeline as the linear effect on the wall is more effective in helping students see the connections than timelines kept in folders and books.
I also wanted to be able to add events or people to our timeline as we encountered them so a flexible system was important.
However I wanted something that would look a little less temporary as obviously the timeline will remain on the wall for quite some time.
Then I saw this idea for hanging children’s art and I had a little light bulb moment.
Today my mum and I headed off to Ikea to purchase 6 Deka Curtain Wire and Clip sets. One wire for each century. (I feel sorry for evolutionists!)
Our timeline is going to live on the hallway wall opposite our art and craft cupboard. We have extra wide hallways so protruding elements shouldn’t be a problem. However I quite like the idea of positioning them flush to the wall as well.
I can’t wait to get these up on the wall. I do hope they’ll be up before school starts back.
Hubby dearest…I know you’re reading this. These dear readers are really eager to see this timeline system. Do you think perhaps you could do this small thing for your dearest wife before the end of the holidays?? Pretty please…. 😮
